"Deniers," are WE? If so, we're in mighty good company. The warmist fraud is so extensive that Nobel laureate Ivan Giaever has described man-made global warming as a "new religion." On 13 September 2011 Giaever resigned from the American Physical Society over its official position that "the evidence is incontrovertible." Honest scientists know that skepticism is a virtue, not a vice.
Bellingham and Whatcom County - look north for a little wisdom. Wake up, get real. Act with common sense and summon some courage. Dump ICLEI, and defund the kooky "sustainability" eco-activism that is eroding our county's unique character. It's tapping the strength of our free market, and stomping our ingenuity and civil rights. Honesty and realism offer a better direction toward a brighter and more productive future.

Canada is reported to be planning to announce it is leaving the Kyoto Protocols, intended to reduce CO2 emissions in the hope of halting global warming, which hasn't occurred in the last decade, according to theories which lack actual scientific proof. The private Canadian CTV television network reports:
Canada will announce next month that it will formally withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol, CTV News has learned.
The Harper government has tentatively planned an announcement for a few days before Christmas, CTV's Roger Smith reported Sunday evening.
The developments come as Environment Minister Peter Kent prepares for a climate conference in Durban, South Africa that opens on Monday, with delegates from 190 countries seeking a new international agreement for cutting emissions.
Issues on the agenda include extending the Kyoto emission targets, a move being championed by Christiana Figueres, head of the UN climate secretariat.
Kent said in the House of Commons on Nov. 22 he won't sign a document at the Durban conference that extends the Kyoto targets.
"Canada goes to Durban with a number of countries sharing the same objective, and that is to put Kyoto behind us," Kent said
The global warming emperor has no clothes, and now a member of the G-8 is going to be saying so, if this report is correct.
